Dog Days of Summer: Brigit Aine Excerpt

I thought we'd start today with an excerpt from author Brigit Aine's forthcoming paranormal novel "Cassie's Awakening" (coming in September from Ellora's Cave as part of the Torrent's Talents Series).

“I repeat, what do you think you are doing,” Cassie asked with more bravado then she was feeling. She had never felt anything like what was emanating from Jared. It seemed to overwhelm all of her senses and Cassie was struggling with just getting breathe in and out of her lungs. She looked up at him and found herself face to face with eyes that were so intense she couldn’t see anything but them. There was a slight glow to them and Cassie was fascinated. She had never seen anything like it before. It was almost like there was something deep inside creating a light.
“Don’t ever touch Kraig again or let him touch you,” Jared’s voice rumbled deep in his chest and it seemed to come out as a growl. Jared was having trouble keeping his wolf in check. When Kraig had kissed Cassie it was all he could do to not rip the pup’s head off. Jared knew Cassie didn’t know anything about being his mate, or even what it entailed, but he did and he was having trouble controlling the wolf because of it. He had barely managed to control changing and he certainly wasn’t going to stop the rush of jealousy and anger at his mate being touched by another man, and not just a man, but by another werewolf. And with that thought he quit thinking and did what his wolf wanted, he kissed Cassie.
Cassie was getting ready to comment on Jared’s voice, which had changed and become gravelly and, in all honesty, super sexy, and his eyes, which had seemed to be glowing slightly, when he shifted slightly, bent his head down and captured her lips. This was not a gentle first kiss, but a conquering one. His lips slanted over hers, his tongue demanding entry and when she thought to resist a little, it was pushing its way past her lips into her mouth. Stroking his tongue along hers he seemed to devour and taste every bit of her. Cassie gave in and wrapped her arms around his neck, pushing her tongue against his and demanding everything from him that he was demanding from her. He tasted of coffee and summer, something she was sure was uniquely Jared.
